Water and some nano-structured iron oxide is all it takes to produce bubbles of solar hydrogen. EPFL and Technion scientists just discovered the champion structure to achieve this In the quest for the production of renewable and clean energy, photoelectrochemical cells (PECs) constitute a sort of a Holy Grail. PECs are devices able of splitting water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen in a single operation, thanks to solar radiation. "As a matter of fact, we've already discovered this...

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Oxygen is a necessary component for the survival of most terrestrial life on Earth. The planet´s atmosphere, however, did not always contain this life-sustaining substance. How and when oxygenic photosynthesis — the process responsible for producing oxygen on Earth through the splitting of water molecules — first began has been considered one of the great science mysteries of our planet. A new study, led by...
